“I started training under Sav in 2006. The level of instruction is unparalleled. He took the time to examine all of my bad habits and one by one took care of them. I can honestly say that training at Savarese Jiu Jitsu is one of the best decisions I have ever made.” Sean “Spuds” Bermudez
“Sav has been involved in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for as long as I can remember and his BJJ resume is as extensive as it gets: Not only has he been a competitor, a teacher, a coach, a promoter, a matchmaker, a referee, and a sponsor, but he also has a black belt! Sav knows the sport from every angle. For me, one of the things that has always stood out the most about Sav is his passionate dedication to his people – be they teammates, students, or friends from other teams. This is the guy you want in your corner. Whether you want to get in shape while learning some practical self defense or train to be a top competitor, Sav will guide you to your goals.”

“Chris Savarese is, in my opinion, one of the top instructors/coaches in the USA today. Sav has a great mind for jiu-jitsu and I’ve spent alot of time exchanging ideas and moves with him. He has been my coach/corner for some of my matches and has helped me alot over the years. I always call him for strategic advise and gameplans before my matches. His school is the place I train when I am on the East Coast and I highly recommend it to anyone. His knowledge is priceless and so is his love for BJJ. He is a true professor of BJJ.” Jeff Glover Paragon BJJ blackbelt 2 x Pan American Champion 18 x Grapplers Quest champion

I can tell you,from my experience, that few instructors out there have the skill, integrity, and a genuine love of teaching as Chris Savarese. It shows in his class, as all of his students in class are skilled, very welcoming, and eager to help a new comer.
